The Blues have fallen out of the League One play-off spots after their 1-0 defeat by the Cod Army.

Callum Connolly notched the only goal of the game in a clash on the Fylde coast that was dominated by blustery conditions.

The reverse pushes Kenny Jackett’s men to seventh spot, with victors Fleetwood replacing Pompey in the top six.

Disappointed to say the least, you’d better hope we bounce with a win against MK Dons back at home on Tuesday Jackett!

Standard result, & performance after a brilliant result during the week! As they've just replaced us in the Play Offs. So we've just had our first early warning!. But all is not lost just yet!. As we still have 2 home games this week, & have to play them again in 3 weeks!.

Chris Doyle

Just intrigued Pompey fans, should we play full strength in the Cup against Arsenal given various comments about having priorities wrong by playing a strong line up one game from Wembley

Alan Chandler

How the mood can change after every result. Things are never that good or probably that bad, positives are, we are going to Wembley.

We are still in the FA Cup. We still have a chance of promotion. You can chose to stress about it or enjoy it, think il just enjoy it.... ultimately Jackett's future will be decided in the summer. Pup

Stephen Sackett

Keep the faith

Anthony Knight

Bad day at the office today with everyone around us winning and tougher away games to come too..if we can’t beat Fleetwood how we gonna beat Ipswich and Peterborough ?..our away form is gonna be our downfall and now we’ve slipped out of the play off spots even after our super recent run

Frederick Mayhew

OK if you want jackett out, who will replace him? Or win 9 in a row and get to Wembley

Jason Butcher

Hopefully 6 points from home next week & all u moaners will quieten down. Almost a 3rd of the season to play & most teams in the top 10 have to play rivals, like we do. Plenty of twists & turns yet.

Olly Rogers

Disappointing but that game against Exeter will have drained the players so it's understandable. We go again lads
